Album of the Day
Metallica was already the greatest heavy metal band of the 1980s when they went to work with producer Bob Rock on their fifth studio collection. Released 30 years ago today, the self-titled “black album” would become the band's biggest ever, entering the chart at No.1 and eventually selling more than 13 million copies in the U.S. alone. Metallica's commercial breakthrough owes much to one of the quartet's strongest sets of songs – the dozen originals include “Enter Sandman,” “Sad But True,” “The Unforgiven,” “Nothing Else Matters” and “Wherever I May Roam” - all of which were successful singles. Now available exclusively at Rhino.com, the Deluxe METALLICA Leather Jacket Bundle includes the remastered original album, a picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs and six DVDs, plus a 120-page hardcover book and a leather jacket inspired by the one made for the band and their family during their early '90s tours.
